Geospatial Analysis of Health Facilities in Urban Areas: A Case Study of Dehradun City by Upendra Bhai Patel and B.L. Teli
Nowadays, time is considered as valuable as gold. Once time is used sensibly, access to a lot of opportunities is possible. People, who want to go to Hospitals/Clinics in different places as patient, may need to have some information about those places (Hospitals/Clinics). Determining the shortest routes to the healthcare places from their accommodations will be both timesaving and economical. Geographical Information System (GIS) Tech-nologies provide us with these possibilities. But transportation of a patient to hospital in emergency seems quite simple but in reality it is pretty difficult during peak hours. A significant operation for the handling of emergency incidents is the routing of responding vehicles to incident sites and then to the closest appropriate hospitals. GIS technology can support emergency responders to provide efficient response in quick response time through solving the steering problems.
The study was carried out on Dehradun city, where there are an optimum healthcare facilities with a large inflow of men/women and tourist both foreign and domestic. GIS Database was created using Cartosat-1 & LISS-IV satellite data and ancillary information. GIS based Network analysis was carried out by taking advantages of GIS possibilities for healthcare facilities. Shortest path in terms of time and length were carried out using Network Analyst of ArcGIS. ArcGIS Server was used for configuring, publishing and web services application. Assessment of wards which lack in higher order hospitals was carried out.
